SHOES

I think that Shoes has always been my first choice when it comes to selecting footwear. I do wear the flip-flops sometimes but I have never ever used a sandal. Shoes are very comfortable to wear and they also look very smart on your feet. I guess that even doctors recommend the use of a good pair of shoes to help you to improve your posture and walk in a proper manner.

More protection and durability

I prefer wearing shoes as compared with wearing sandals because it is very dusty from where I live in and it is annoying getting your feet dirty with sandals. As experienced, shoes are more durable than sandals especially those that are branded. Also, you'll get extra protection if you wear socks and shoes rather than exposing your feet by wearing open toed sandals.

shoes

I think shoes look better on men because exposed feet don't really fit them. If this were about women I think I would go for sandals more although I could go either way, but for men I think closed shoes really is the only way to go most of the time and the only exception would be if the person were at the beach or some similar situation.

Shoes

I am not nor have I ever been a 'sandal person.' Especially because I see some people wearing socks with sandals. Like what the hell is that? I do wear slippers sometimes in the hot Summer time to the grocery store. But I'd never wear sandals. They just aren't my thing.

Dust is my enemy

I prefer shoes because they're closed compared to sandals. Living in a country where there's a lot vehicles which creates a lot of dust pollution, I really hate wearing sandals especially if I'm on the road because my feet would get really itchy because of the dust. Also, I hate it because whenever I enter the mall, my feet will look so dirty that it's a bit embarrassing.

I would prefer wearing shoes as it can be worn in either formal or casual attire. It also comes with a lot of styles that could an outfit cool and on trend. Also it is much more relaxing to wear compared to sandals especially those shoes with a soft garment.

Cloud Comfort

Not all sandals are comfortable. The people who do say that have never worn a good pair of shoes in their lives. Sure they might cost more but even rubber shoes from Nike and Adidas are integrating the cloud like foam in their soles. Really comfy and would recommend people use for everyday.

Shoes for me

I'm actually not a fan of sandals, and honestly, I don't have a single pair of sandals at home. I love shoes because unlike sandals, I feel like my feet are protected from both dirty water and dust of the pollution whenever I go out. Also, I can comfortably move, walk and run whenever I wear shoes.

Not comfortable with your skin exposed

For me, the reason why you are wearing a footwear is to cover the skin of your feet. I'm used to having my feet completely covered, or mostly covered because I prefer boat shoes, when I'm going somewhere quite far from home. Talking about fashion, boat shoes are the best for me because it is somewhere in between formal and casual look.

Covered

I get cold easily so I would prefer a footwear that will cover my feet all through out, and that's shoes for you. I do use sandals for some religious gathering but that's all about it, I always go for shoes anywhere I go. Sometimes I even wear shoes at home specially when it's cold, I'm more comfortable in it that bare footed.

shoes definitely

I choose shoes because they prevent you from getting infections from all the polution going on. Cases such as cracked legs can never occur to you if you use shoes any time you are outdoors. Shoes also offer protection to bottom part of your leg incase you trip and fall or even step on a sharp object.

Shoes

In clothing, I believe that the best investments are bags and footwear. I don't mind spending much on my shoes, because my feet are very sensitive, and cheap footwear just won't do. I like my footwear classy yet comfortable, and so I would choose shoes over sandals.

Shoes any day

When I was a teen, I used to wears sandals more than shoes. However, I relocated to an area that is very cold, and my feet would get very cold.

I was advised to avoid sandals, and since then I am okay. That's why I am voting for shoes.

Shoes on the go

Collecting shoes is one of my hobbies now a days, what more when it comes to wearing them? I would go with shoes all the time. Wearing different kinds of brands to show off and to display to all people. I love wearing sneakers, high cuts and boat shoes because they are my kind of taste and what really makes me intrigued to collect. Wearing shoes are comfy, makes sure that your feet are well secured and rested.

I am comfortable with shoes

I love shoes ever since when I was a kid. I seldom wear sandal because it easily slip off on my feet. Aside from that sandals are not long lasting, they easily get damage. Compared to shoes, it is very comfy to wear. It is easier for me to walk on rocky roads and easier to move around wearing one of these. Shoes can be use anywhere. May it be on casual gathering or in formal occasion.

Shoes...

It's always been more comfortable for me to wear shoes rather than sandals. If I was in a hurry I wear flats since they're very easy to put on. Sandals make me feel like my feet are always dirty, it's just how I am. Comfort and peace of mind is more important for me so shoes it is!

Barefoot all the way

I cannot stand shoes! I wear them if I must and even sandals get kicked off the moment I am able. I will happily wander in the garden barefoot and the only footwear I appreciate if it is cold is my Uggs. Sandals are nearest I can get to barefoot if I must wear any thing else.

Comfort

I find the sandals more comfortable. it's pity that I can't use it in the work place. Because most of the time having the sandals in the work place can add more comfort. And it can be overall good enough for the regular usage. It makes things lot easier for me in that context.

When I was in high school the sandals were very popular but not for girls. Mostly men wear sandals during that time especially when it was summer that the heat was unbearable. But after some years the sandals lost popularity because of the dust that would make the feet dirty. When you are wearing the sandals for the whole day it would be impossible to have clean feet. They will be soiled for sure.

I live on a tropical country so gets really hot. Wearing sandals is more refreshing and shoes will make my feet hotter. I don’t have the prettiest shoes so I rather have my feet enclosed on a shoe. I would wear both seriously.

I cannot choose since I love and use both. I think the answer will just depend on the event or weather. If it is a rainy season, I will use sandal since it is open and won't accumulate water. And if I will to the mall and meet friends, I wear shoes.

It depends on where I am going mostly. I will wear shoes if the event I am going to requires that and I am more comfortable to wear it during casual days like going into the mall or hanging out with friends. I also like to wear sandals if I'm just going around neighborhood or if I don't feel like wearing shoes.

I'm so on the fence with this. Shoes are probably the more practical choice, but when it comes to comfort I'd say sandals all the way! I wear my Birkenstocks all the time until the weather gets too cold for them!

Regardless of the visible aesthetic consequences of the use of summer sandals, experts agree that wearing flip flops and flat sandals can be the worst choice for our feet, however comfortable you think they are. They can result in infections, unbearable pain and a change in our way of walking.

I think I have to go with shoes due to the simple fact that they’re all-purpose and good for all year round. Sandals are only really useful either during the summer time or when you’re going somewhere like the beach or the pool. Not to mention that I don’t find sandals to be all that comfortable. One time, I tried going on a fairly long walk in sandals, and I had blisters on the side of my feet. Shoes are just more reliable and more comfortable. If you’re going to wear sandals all the time, you have to fork over some really good money for a pair of high-quality ones.

Shoes and boots completely cover your feet, so it’s not hard to imagine that wearing open-toed footwear would increase ventilation. sandals means there is more skin exposed, increasing the surface area exposed to air

There is no wrong in wearing either sandals or shoes. What is important is where you feel comfortable. Sandals is easy to wear in any kind of seasons but you cannot wear it when it comes to formal event unlike shoes you can wear it anytime and anywhere.

I do prefer wearing shoes because in many areas of the world, sanitation is poor and disease is widespread. Going without shoes in areas without proper disposal methods for animal and human waste makes people susceptible to parasitic worms and other foot infections. These diseases can be debilitating or even lethal. Part of the job of shoes is to absorb impact as we walk, but bad shoes (or no shoes) can throw the whole body out of alignment. If shoes don’t have enough padding or don’t allow for an even stride, pain is an almost inevitable side effect.

Personally, I would use shoes over sandals. Shoes nowadays are also light and breathable for our feet. I tried using sandals back when I was a little kid and that would be the only time I can remember wearing one. Leather sandals are nice too but it depends on conditions and situations and definitely will think about it if I would use one. I believe that it is more comfortable to use shoes or running shoes instead of sandals and it gives more protection to our fairly important feet. Shoes are more decent and tidy to look at.

Every time summer comes, many people exclaim 'praise be to God, we can finally get our feet up in the air!' But shoes designed for high temperatures are not so good. And that is because, however breezy they are, the flip-flops are not the most appropriate footwear for the health of our feet. They sweat more, get dirty and you also have to keep your skin and nails well taken care of because they are more visible than ever.

Choosing what to wear between shoes and sandals depends on where you are going to or what you are going to do. I wear shoes when I will be in a meeting or whenever I go to work. I wear sandals whenever I go meet friends and go outside because I find them more convenient to wear than shoes.

We live in a tropical country that is dusty and with warm weather that wearing sandals is not appropriate unless you are into something like going to the beach or the pool. Especially when you are in the city, wearing sandals is like wearing slippers that will soil your feet. Shoes is the order of the day especially when you go to work. But in fairness to the sandals, I remember it was in fashion when I was in grade school.

I think it depends on your attire, weather, climate, comfortability and for what you are going to use it. For a formal attire, shoes are your best friend while for a casual attire, sandals are the most comfortable footwear you can use. Also if it is rainy, I suggest using sandals over shoes. Shoes' quality in this kind of situation is more fragile compared to sandals. Comfortability wise though, I'll go for shoes.

I had so many issues with shoes that I choose every time I buy one. Before I thought just buying it because it attracts me so much then it only last for weeks. Thats actually my problem because my feet are really big hehe. So I learned that when choosing shoes or sandals, is to make sure the quality of it. Wether its branded, as long it will last, comfortable to wear, and worth for my money, I will definitely buy it.

Definitely shoes. I like sandals some of them are really cute with some outfits, especially if it's really hot or you are going to the beach. However I live in a Country that is really dusty so I very rarely wear sandals unless I'm at home or I am at a place where I don't have to move around e.g if I'm a hotel which is indoors. For days to day life I prefer shoes because they keep my feet dry and clean. If you live on the beach or in a hot Country then sandals are okay.
